    There is an aphorism to the effect that there is only a small difference between police and criminals, just as there is only a small difference between sheep dogs and wolves. It is that small difference, however, that distinguishes heroes from enemies of society. Sheep dogs and wolves are members of the same species, and both are physically and temperamentally capable of killing other animals. The key difference is, of course, that sheep dogs never harm the sheep they protect from the wolves. A police officer must, like the violent criminals he or she arrests, be similarly capable of handling...

    The sheep, or as many call them, the sheeple, are content to graze in the pasture of television and newspapers, living their lives without a care in the world. Some are true believers, biting at every sprig of lusciously painted foliage offered. Most, however, are satisfied with the sustenance their current enclosure provides them. Cyprus? Drones? It doesn't matter to them; they go on with their lives oblivious to the world around them as long as they have March Madness and Honey Boo-Boo. Since they obey the law, why should they care? Surely, the government is here to protect them....

    If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen: a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath–a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? Then you are a sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.

    Aurora Colorado and the Sikh Temple. Rampage Killings:A clinical response analysis Part I The Stage: The recent Aurora Colorado and Sikh Temple rampage killings have the urban liberals and their ilk once again howling for gun bans and damning semi-autos as weapons of mass destruction fit only for battlefields. The gun culture counters with how it shows once again that venues where guns are banned (the theater and the Temple are gun free zones) are nothing but killing zones targeted by the rampage killers. This article and Part II to follow, instead describes a formula for dramatically decreasing your odds...

    On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs - Dave Grossman By LTC (RET) Dave Grossman, author of "On Killing." ### Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for? - William J. Bennett - in a lecture to the United States...

    Lillington, N.C. — In the wake of a mass shooting that critically injured one of her fellow lawmakers, Republican 2nd District Congresswoman Renee Ellmers said Thursday that she plans to carry a gun when making public appearances. "We have to protect ourselves. We know that. That is something we have always been cognizant of,” Ellmers said. "There have been times in the past I have carried my weapon, and I will probably continue to do so. Some days I might have it. Some days I might not." The longtime nurse and Dunn resident obtained a concealed-carry permit in February after...

    Jill Edwards is one of the students at the University of Washington who did not want to honor Medal of Honor winner USMC Colonel Greg Boyington because she does not think those who serve in the U.S. Armed services are good role models.

    LANCASTER - The California Poppy is said to have inspired the nickname "La Tierra del Fuego," or "Land of Fire," by early visitors to the state inspired, perchance, by blazing hills of orange and yellow. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the poppy's designation as the state flower and favorable weather this winter and spring has brought forth bountiful blooms in the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, a marked improvement over last year's paucity of poppies. To honor the poppy's centennial and the city of Lancaster, which hosts an annual springtime poppy festival, 36th District Assemblywoman Sharon Runner presented...
